A bit about Harvey Stringer
Harvey Stringer is a 10 year old who plays county darts for the Suffolk Youth U18’s, who has played since September 2018. Harvey was diagnosed with autism in November 2017, but that doesn’t stop him from playing the sport he loves. He first picked up a dart at 3 years of age. Harvey’s darting nickname is ‘the Hurricane’ and from the start of 2020, Harvey has been going to Junior Darts events set up by the PDC. You can track his progress via DartConnect.
Who is Harvey’s favourite player?
Harvey’s favourite player is Gerwyn Price. He met Price at the Alexandra Palace where he was invited along with the rest of the Stringer family to get a VIP tour from the PDC. Harvey and the rest of the family got to see the World Championship trophy, meet the Sky Sports team and he even got play darts up at the Ally Pally stage.
In lockdown Harvey played against Price in a game of darts, in what was a lovely gesture by the Welshman. Harvey really enjoyed every minute of it and was something else he won’t ever forget.
Along with supporting Price, Harvey also is a big fan of Wayne Mardle. Harvey went to a darting exhibition and got the opportunity to play against Mardle in front of many people. Since then Mardle and him have been good friends and Harvey is now an official ‘mab’!
Playing in the JDC
As of 2020, Harvey has started been playing in the JDC. So far, this has given him experience of playing darts along with other good young players such as Leighton Bennett. His aim for the first few years is just to enjoy himself as it is a totally different experience for him, therefore as long as he enjoys himself that is all that matters.
